today we are going to talk about fire safety. we are here at the urban center on mission street in san francisco. it's a wonderful display. a little house in the urban center exhibition center that shows what it's like in a home in san francisco after an earthquake. one of the major issues that we are going to face after earthquakes are fire hazard. we are happy to have
7:02 pm
the fire marshall join us today. >> thank you. my pleasure. >> we talk about the san francisco earthquake that was a fire that mostly devastated the city. how do we avoid that kind of problem. how can we reduce fire hazard? >> the construction was a lot different. we don't expect what we had then. we want to make sure with the gas heaters that the gas is shut off. >> if you shut it off you are going to have no hot water or heat. be careful not to shut it off unless you smell gas. >> absolutely because once you do shut it off you should have the utility company come in and turn it back on. here is a mock up of a gas hear
7:03 pm
the on a house. where would we find the gas meter? >> it should be in your garage. everyone should be familiar with where the gas meter is. >> one of the tools is a wrench, a crescent wrench. >> yes. the crescent wrench is good and this is a perfect example of how to have it so you can loosen it up and use it when you need it. >> okay. let's go inside to talk about fire safety. many of the issues here relate to fire, for example, we have a little smoke detector and i see you brought one here, a carbon monoxide smoke detector. >> this is a combination of
7:04 pm
smoke and carbon monoxide detector. they are required in single homes now and in apartment buildings. if gas appliance is not burning properly this will alert you before the fumes buildup and will affect you negatively. >> this is a battery powered? >> this is a battery powered and it has a 10 year battery life. a lot of times you may have one or the other. if you put in just a carbon monoxide detector, it's important to have one of these too. every house should have a fire extinguisher, yes. >> one thing people expect to do when the power goes out after an earthquake about using
7:05 pm
candles. what would you recommend? >> if you have a battery operated candle would be better to use. this kind of a candle, you wouldn't want it in an area where it can cause a fire or aftershock that it doesn't rollover. you definitely want to have this in a non-combustible surface. >> now, here we have our stove. after a significant earthquake we expect that we may have gas disrupted and so without gas in your home, how are you going to cook? >> well, i wouldn't recommend cooking inside of the house. you have to go outside and use a portable stove or something else.
7:06 pm
>> so it wouldn't be safe to use your fireplace to cook? >> not at first. you should check it by a professional first. >> outside should be a safe place to cook as long as you stay away from buildings and doors and windows. >> yes. that will be fine. >> here we have some alternative cooking areas. >> you can barbecue and if you have a regular propane bark could barbecue. >> thank you for joining us. and thanks for this terrific space that you have in this exhibition space and thanks for
7:07 pm
helping san francisco stay safe. >> all right. well, i'm daniel lery the chair of the super bowl bid committee, we have been doing at this for about nine months now and mayor lee gave me the honor and the privilege of taking on this task. we have had incredible momentum, we have an incredible bid committee compiled and we have mayor willie brown involved and we have charles scwhab and rice and joe, deasandro and an amazing collection, but today we are humble and honored to add the fire power to the committee in
7:08 pm
the form of world champions, and a hall of famer, and folks that have taken part in over ten percent of the super bowls, and we have great admiration and respect for both of you and we cannot thank you enough for coming on board and helping us get this over the goal line. we hand off our final package on may 7th, to, the nfl owners and then we present on may 21st, but, the one thing that we want everybody to realize is that this is the community-wide effort and that this is going to be something that is not just about san francisco and it is not just about santa clara and it is about the entire region coming together and the reason that i took on this role was that we have amazing things happening in this community and we have amazing technology and we have amazing business leaders and we want to highlight that and we are going to over the next six weeks.
7:09 pm
but, i'm focused also in highlighting what is happening for those that are or the things that are not yet great, we have 1.3 million people who are too poor to meet their basic needs and so what we are going to do by bringing the greatest game to the greatest city and region, is we are going to make this good for the entire community, and that is why this is going to be the most philentropic super bowl bid and hopefully super bowl and the nfl and the nation has ever seen and with that i would like to turn it over to mayor lee. >> thank you. thank you. >> good morning. daniel, thank you, again for your wonderful leadership, up our bay area super bowl committee and thank you, again, i still remember the very first time that we talked about what it was and what the 9ers meant to us and i want to thank you and the whole 49ers franchise
7:10 pm
for continuing to work on this wonderful legacy that we have with the 9ers and supporting if not helping us lead the super bowl bid, committee as well. you know, just the last couple of days, i have to admit that some of us were kind of looking very, disappointed about the events or regarding the blue angels. and it just kind of reminded us how important these events are to a great city like san francisco, to the fan--base but also to the residents as well as to neighborhoods and the businesses events like the blue angels and like the fleet week, and we can't do without because when they do decide that they can't be here for any reason, there is a real heavy breathing that goes on, and that certainly is something that i felt. but that means that i'm as
7:11 pm
enthusiastic about the america's cup because that will definitely be a strong filler in. but i am absolutely thrilled and enthusiastic about our super bowl bid. and it will be a great thing for us to do, and it brings as daniel said, all of the elements of our bay area together, the cities and the corporations and the neighborhoods and the fan base and it has that over tone that i love about what the nfl will do, with us, with the proceeds of this wonderful event. you know, i have had a chance and i know that all of you have had a chance to relive the excitement of the super bowl and as i told coach severt and steve young just now in my office i paced five yards back in my office all day long and at home. just to relive that possibility that occurred this past super bowl. and that just reflects the excitement that we have with the super bowl bid. and now, today, it is my
7:12 pm
privilege to co-announce with everyone here two people that are additional fire power to our super bowl bid committee. george sefert and steve young don't need introduction but i love talking about them with the past 9ers. the coach led the 9ers to two supervisor victoris in 90 and 95. and he brought his own 49ers legacy because during had time as i remember, the 49ers earned the best defense team in the whole nation that was a wonderful, wonderful achievement and it continues with that legend, so coach, thank you for bringing your winning record and your wonderful great name to help us win another super bowl, super bowl bid for super bowl 50 or 51 for the bay area. and coach, partner in 1995 was, of course, the legendary, hall of famer, famous quarterback
7:13 pm
steve young who threw a record 6 touchdown passes during that game and became the first ever player to lead the super bowl in rushing and passing. thank you for your support, your leadership and your lending your legend to our pay area super bowl bid to help us complete the final yards of this effort in bringing it all the way to the end zone. and you know, george, and steve, and jed they all know that there is no better place in america to host a super bowl, 50 or 51 than the san francisco and the bay area. and with san francisco as the official host city and the game to be played in santa clara we know that every hotel room and restaurant between here and san jose will be filled and that the entire region will come together and benefit tremendously from the hosting of the super bowl and that is why we have so many of our departments that are here from our city administrator to our
7:14 pm
public works all of the city families coming together, with the bay area, to make sure that we host a great event for the whole entire area. and i know that once we host this first super bowl, once we win it, and we host it, that we will be in the rotation for future super bowls as well. we have the hotel rooms, we have the hospitality and we have the transportation network and we have the businesses and the community to support, to do this right and to do this well. and so, i want to just again, thanks daniel, thanks the entire super bowl bid committee, and welcome in george and steve to join jed and daniel and all of us in making sure that we persuade the nfl in may, that we have earned the right to host super bowl 50. thank you. push [ applause ]
7:15 pm
>> as you know we have the draft coming up and a lot of draft picks and we traded up to get the two top guys in the draft and we have them now and in coach siefert and steve young and i think that it is very important to echo what mayor lee said this is about bringing a region together, you know, everyone from san francisco, to santa clara to san jose, that is what sports is about and that is what sports does for a community. and we have been working tirelessly to build a state of the art stadium, that embodies northern california. from the technical standpoint, from a sustainable standpoint. and you know, to it rate one of the things that i am the most proud of, this will be the first lead stadium in the national football league and we will be neutral to the grid for the ten home games and that means for the home games we will be powered completely by the sun and nobody else can say
7:16 pm
that in professional sports in this country. and i think that is something that highlights what we are trying to do and what we are trying to show sports can be not just a great thing for the community, but a becon for what we should be striving for every day in our life from a technical standpoint and sustainability standpoint and we are excited that the weather has been fantastic over the winter where we are ahead of schedule on construction and we are moving forward and, we can't wait to play a first game in 2014, and we are looking very much forward to hosting the super bowl, and getting ourselves into the rotation. and as we all know, we lived here and we love the bay area and we want to show everybody else in the world that this is the greatest place to host the greatest game in the world. and i would like to introduce the coach and really thank both steve and george for being here and being a part of this. thank you. [ applause ] thank you, jed.
7:17 pm
thank you, mayor and dan, i'm obviously proud and excited to be part of this committee that will attempt to bring the 50th super bowl to the san francisco bay area, it was in i believe, 1967, that the first super bowl was played in los angeles, california. and that seems only fitting now that the nfl bring the 50th super bowl to northern california in the san francisco bay area. san francisco in the area over the years is a hosted successfully, many nfc championship games, and the super bowl at stanford in 1985, i thought it was 95. the years go by so rapidly and as now recently, the world series games and we have so much to offer and we are going to have an awesome stadium as far as the san francisco bay area and the attractiveness of the city itself.
7:18 pm
and from the wine country to the north to carm el to the south. it is a great venue to host a game. i'm familiar with one of the two areas in particular. more than the other. the north. and but at any rate, we have a tremendous tradition going back to the days of kesar and the great football players and we have one of the only back fields where everybody is in the hall of fame. i am sure that all of you remember all of the players and kesar and but now we have the great players that have been a part of our tradition, we offer a great venue, and i am excited to be part of it and at the same time i am excited to introduce steve young and steve is obviously one of the reasons that we are able to win so many games and to win a super bowl, in what year was that? >> 95. >> is it 1995? >> thank you very much. >>
7:19 pm
[ applause ] >> okay? >> thanks, george. >> it is always good to reunite with him to see him. >> super bowls have a way of defining the careers and a way of defining cities, and you look at the championships that have been here, recently with the giant and obviously with the 49ers back in the mix and the history of the 49ers, we have been associated with the super bowls and it is an association that we really relish. the idea that it would be here in san francisco, makes sense, it is one of the great destinations cities in america we were lacking the physical play at the stadium to do it and now that has been taken care of and i appreciate those efforts. >> they have a way of these big defining moments to build a lot of bridges both daniel and the mayor and george mentioned this is a bridge building effort and i appreciate being associated with that kind of that would
7:20 pm
allow the relationships that could be mended and the super bowl is a great place to do that. and i am appreciative of the efforts to do that and i think that if you think about where the super bowl has been in the past and compare it to san francisco, and san francisco lacks nothing. and really the entire bay area, to host a tremendous event. and i think that obviously it makes sense to everybody here but i think that even nationwide, people think about it and think, of course, that makes sense and so i look forward to that game and i look forward to hopefully winning that bid next month. thanks a lot. >> steve, george, thank you very much for coming on board, supervisor ferrell thank you for all of your efforts mayor, lee and jed, and thank you, and you guys can grab us afterwards and we are not going to take
7:21 pm
questions now, may 7th, the bid is due, may 21st, we present in boston to the owners and with this team, behind us, we are going to get it done, so thank you, have a great day.
